The "Oudini" Keeps on Fightin'; Slays ANOTHER Russian

How exactly do you explain what Melanie Oudin has done to her career in just four matches. First, she beat Pavlyuchenkova (Russian victim #1). Minor Upset. Then came her stunning victory over Dementieva (Russian victim #2). Inspiring. Maria Sharapova (Russian victim # 3) was the next casualty. Holy Shit, this youngster has game. And most recently, her comeback victory over an in-form Nadia Petrova (Russian victim #4) to reach her first GS quarterfinal. UNIMAGINEABLE. Melanie Oudin doesn't have "believe" written on her fashion-savvy custom-made Adidas Barricades for nothin', ya'll. Melanie's twin sis', Katherine, wrote a blog for the NY Time about her sister's incredible run. Katherine was able to make the trip today to see her 17 year old sister's 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 victory over Petrova.
